Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Armani Cotton scored 15 points, leading four players in double figures, as the Yale Bulldogs registered a 68-59 win over the Penn Quakers in Ivy League play at The Palestra.

Matt Townsend accounted for 12 points for the Bulldogs (8-14, 2-3 Ivy), followed by Justin Sears and Javier Duren with 11 points apiece, the duo combining for 15 rebounds as well, helping the squad to snap a two-game slide.

The Quakers (4-17, 1-3), losers of four of the last five, were led by Henry Brooks who tallied 12 points before fouling out. Tony Hicks chipped in 11 points before he too picked up his fifth personal foul, while Dau Jok connected on 3-of-5 shots behind the 3-point line as he finished with 10 points off the bench.
